Visited this as part of a walking tour we were following in the Lonely Planet guide. Lovely courtyard full of little craft workshops & cafes. The shops sell all sorts of handicrafts such as shawls, pottery & jewellery, making it a great place to buy souvenirs or gifts. Even if you're not shopping, it's still a lovely building to wander...

I work nearby and visit it regularly. It is a very well conserved historic building that transmit a nice atmosphere. The restaurants in the patio are nice for lunch and the shops upstairs good for souvenirs. It is just a calm place to enjoy a coffee or a lunch under the shade.

Excellent place, especially in the evening. I went near sunset and the lighting was great. the area around the place shuts down very quickly after about 6 pm, and the streets abandoned, so know your route back. this is about 10 minutes from the ledras street crossing.

Found this once we walked through the crossing into the north side. Very lovely with plenty of places to grab some food to take in your surroundings. Had an amazing meal very cheap due to the TL rate currently. Loved sitting people watching in the winter sunshine.

We stumbled upon it only by chance and I'm glad we did. There are some nice crafts shops and restaurants catering to locals. Great Turkish coffee. The Turkish side of Nicosia is where you go to enjoy the real atmosphere and imagine how the whole city must have looked like.

Good to see this well restored ( or as our tour guide said, Restorated) Han. An old resting place fro camel trains. A good range of gift shops and nice little cafes. It was January so would expect it to be busier in mid summer

Super quaint atmosphere - good place to relax and eat and have a drink in while looking around North (Turkish-occupied part of) Nicosia; food is ok. Trinket stalls around the 'compound'. Worth seeing if you are in Nicosia.

Nice historic courtyard to shelter in on a wet windy January day. Very close to the Ledra crossing and makes a welcome change from surrounding shops selling copy watches and bags. Get your souvenirs here! It also has toilet facilities!

An old building that used to be a stopping point for people and their camels to stay in. Now renovated with small traditional cafes and craft shops. Worth visiting.

Stumbled upon this courtyard by accident. Popular with the locals. Included a display of crochet blankets. The work of Greek & Turkish Cypriot women who have the wisdom to understand that more joins humanity and the political wedges that divided the country were a retrograde development.
